In 1974 Valerie Francis and Janet Macdonald formed the Ladies’ Side Saddle Association (now known as the Side Saddle Association) to recapture and preserve the traditions of the earlier years, when riding side saddle was in its heyday and daring and elegance its chief characteristics
The Association is divided into areas which offer everyone the help they need and the opportunity to compete, attend clinics and learn the elegant art of side saddle.
Seminars and training sessions are run throughout the year to enable our members to continually develop their skills in order for them to take part in a wide range of disciplines including Equitation, Hunting, Hunter Trials, Ridden Hunter Classes, Retraining of Racehorse Classes, Team Chasing, Dressage, Show-jumping, Quadrilles and demonstrations to name a few of the activities our members participate in. The National Side Saddle Show takes place every August with over 70 classes for side saddle riders.
